Yikes. What do you recommend instead of the black foam? I just had to
toss a bunch of old ICs whose leads had rusted in completely degraded

that sounds stupider as I write this than when I did it - I was hoping
that 2020’s foam was better than 1970’s foam. Any suggestions?
Well, that 2020s foam will be fine for a while. ;) But the best
solution seems to be plastic chip tubes. They pop up on eBay
frequently, sometimes in nice large batches.
